Still struggle to look past Barca - City and European Football isn't a match made in heaven unfortunately.

I like the fact that Messi fired a warning that "This is the worst time to be playing against Barcelona" as if they were hitting some sort of incredible form, and then they go and lose to Malaga at home.

Looking forward to this. Watched Bara's last couple of games, well before Malaga and they've looked as good as they did a few years ago, and City with Yaya Toure back in the side are a strong side. I think it will be close, but come on City!

Hopefully this is a high-scoring affair, I don't particularly care who wins it.

Is Yaya not suspended tonight?

Barca rarely do the business in away legs anywhere never mind just in England. Neymar will score though.

He is indeed.

I predict a 1-1, Barcelona to utterly dominate the game.

I like the fact that Messi fired a warning that "This is the worst time to be playing against Barcelona" as if they were hitting some sort of incredible form, and then they go and lose to Malaga at home.
To be fair JJ, they were in incredible form before the loss to Malaga, they had won 11 games in a row (equalling a club record) prior to it. They most likely had this game on their minds.

I'm hoping for a 2 - 1 City result tonight so that they'll go into the Liverpool game with the second leg on their minds which will help the Reds.

Think it will be a score draw though so I'll plump for 2 - 2.

If anyone scores its suarez
The 4th best scoring forward on display? Not that he couldn't score, mind.

1-3 for Barcelona. Pellegrini has had a nightmare with the lineup selection. I understand he has a preference for two strikers; I don't understand how he thinks that midfield beats Barcelona. Granted, it was always a tough ask without Yaya.

Aye, just stand off Messi and let him do what he wants with it. Kompany all over the shop again.
